Heath Ramshaw and Liam McMahon have re-signed with the Carlton Reserves.
Ramshaw joined the Reserves in 2021, making four appearances in the side in 2022 in its run to September. Cementing his spot in the side, the 19-year-old played 16 matches with the Blues’ VFL side last season.
After an outstanding season in the Navy Blue, Ramshaw was awarded the Best Young Player Award. His talent was on full display in the Round 12 match against Essendon where he amassed 33 disposals and kicked a major.
After being drafted to Collingwood, McMahon joined the VFL Blues in 2023 where he played 17 games, kicking 18 goals with multiple games — including two four-goal hauls.
We hear it's a big day to welcome new Young talent to the Club? 🙃— Carlton Reserves (@CarltonReserves) November 20, 2023
We're delighted to announce the acquisition of Lachie Young as a VFL Blue for 2024!
Carlton VFL Coach Luke Power said he was delighted to retain the promising duo.
“The talent they have both shown in just their short time with the side has been impressive and we know there is so much potential yet to be unlocked,” Power said.
“Liam provides a focal point for us in attack and has been a great addition to our forward line but he also has the flexibility to play down back which is fantastic.
“Heath has shown great improvement since joining the side. He has a great ability to perform his role for the team and has a competitive drive to play hard until the final siren.
“Heath and Liam have come into the side and shown such an eagerness to learn and develop their craft. They are well-respected members of the team and have been embraced by everyone around them at the Club: we are excited for them to continue their football career here at Carlton.”
